Should we kill all the pigeons?

If people stopped throwing food down for the pigeons the birds would soon go to pastures new.
Hell with the Pigeons and Shoot them all. They are enoying birds, messy and a health hazzord. Someday I would like to walk through the Market square and not have to worry about being splatted in pigeon droppings. The odd pigeon here and there would not be a crime, but Nottingham has a problem. If there were rats crawling around something would be done about it, well the pigeons are just as bad.
THey should be prevented from breeding. Why cannot the pidgeon fanciers take some of the responsibility, after all thats where most of them originated from.
If they took the shotguns to the 'dirty vermin' who drop the litter and fast food wrappers which attract many of the pigeons, then the excess pigeon population would soon sort itself out. And what about the equally disgusting people who drop the chewing gum? I saw one poor pigeon today with it's feet glued up with the disgusting stuff which had set hard. Clean up Nottingham - starting with the far more disgusting (human) creatures on our streets - and ones who should know better than the poor pigeons!
Ever get the impression students do nothing? Well they do! Let’s pay students to catch the dam things for the following reasons: (1) Pubs and clubs profits will increase, because any money will inevitably be spent in these on beer. In time they will have to pay more taxes, and this can be ploughed back into the local community. And (2) it may provide a hearty meal for the more adventurous students!
I roasted two on sunday. My wife and I enjoyed them very much. Lovely with carrotts and roast spuds.
Shoot them all. I'm a dab-hand at making pastry!
